Dreamless dorm -
Ticking clock,
I walk away -
from the soundless room

Windless night -
Moonlight melts,
My ghostly shadow -
to the lukewarm gloom

Nightly dance...
of bleeding swords...
Reminds me that...
I still live...

I will -
(Burn my dread)
I once ran away from the god of fear
And he chained me to despair-yeah
(Burn my dread)
I will break the chain and run
till I see the sunlight again

I'll lift my face
and run to the sunlight

Voiceless town,
tapping feet,
I clench my fist,
In pockets tight...

Far in mist a tower waits...
Like a merciless tomb,
devouring moonlight...

Clockwork maze -
End unknown,
In frozen time -
A staircase stands

Shadows crawl -
on bloodstained floor,
I rush straight ahead -
with a sword in hands

Cold touch of...
My trembling gun...
I close my eyes...
To hear you breathe...

(Burn my dread x2)

I will
(Burn my dread)
This time I'll grapple down that god of fear
And throw him into hell's fire
(Burn my dread)
I will shrug the pain and run
till I see the sunlight again

Oh, I will run...
burning all regret and dread...
And I will face the sun -
with pride of the living...

I will -
Burn my dread
(Gonna burn the dread, Gonna Burn your dread)
Burn my dread
(One time for your mind)
Burn my dread
(Gotta take it out like this)
Burn my dread
(Ay yo, drop - like - this)

There's no man's land
No man ever survived
Invisible hands are
Behind you just now
If you ever win that
Race against rage then
You'll be king 'cuz
It's no man's land
(For real)

The mask is in heavy rain
Ultimately slain
Make shadows slave
What we've done is in vain
Carrying AK-47, 24/7
But you've gotta live it persecuted by heaven

Comes from the direction, no - indication
You've got to, to let it move first
Let it out, let it down
Let it inside, let loose
Letting getting damn depressed -
Let's get it up

Then what'cha gotta do is -
Drop the hammer down
Drop rhyme, drop hammer
Digging like a labor

You've got blood all over,
Ash all over,
Spit it out, son, game's over

(Burn my dread)
Tear up your fear,
The end is coming near,
Spit it out like a spear,
I'll burn your dread

(Burn my dread)
No soul, robust
All dust, we bust
Justice to the man
with no life

(Burn my dread)
Tear up your fear,
The end is coming near,
Spit it out like a spear,
I'll burn your dread

(Burn my dread)
No soul, robust
All dust, we bust
Justice to the man
with no life

Last Battle "Reincarnation" version

(Burn my dread x2)
Got your bulletproof...
(burn my dread x2)
... vest?
(Burn my dread x5)

Fear not, jump in the fire
Got to burn the dread
Let my soul aspire
To a higher place
In this gaia case
No time to waste
Never close this case, man

Whatever you do, it's always gonna come back
So living by the gun's gonna get the gun clap
I ain't giving in,
Hell no, fuck that
If you got a problem,
Then stand up and say "what?"

Man's gotta do, you know
What a man's gotta do for life
The battle, yeah
Got a little robust since we first met
'Cause I have yet to put my fist down

It ain't easy, but never show my weakness
No way out of this, so you better seize it
Deep breath, talk to Jesus, pray to God
Still make my own way -
And I preach this

(Burn my dread x9)

I am the front man who used to be the nicest
Making my own rules, apply them for their guidance
Only top deuce in the game knows how to fight this
The fear of life, many choose to run away from it

On the straightaway, they get caught up
Grabbed - thrown down - smashed up
I'm afraid of what's to come
At the same time afraid of what I've become

No way out of this, so drop the bomb
Trace my trails and follow and that's done
One, two, three
And let me pop this right here and become number one

I may dictate but you know the shit's great
cause I think straight but my rhyme's not baked
Know that sometimes you just gotta let it go
To the flow, to town on the microphone

(Burn my dread x9)
